Inspired by Fall Leaves

Leaves turning, leaves falling, leaves clinging -- they're definitely on my mind and under my feet and in the air ...

It's fall .. and the leaves take center stage ...

Living in the woods as we do, we don't rake up leaves ... instead we let them carpet the ground and insulate the trees and shrubs thru the cold of the winter. As they decompose, they'll add needed nutrients to the soil and, in a cycle of birth and death and rebirth, continue the life cycle of the living plants from which they came.

Happy Fall Weekend!

Oh such luscious colors -- I love how they blend from one color into another and the softness along with the detailed spines in the leaves. Just gorgeous and a lovely sentiment too.

The trees here are at their height of beauty -- the oranges and reds are particularly beautiful after so much drag color.
